The fine folks at Ben & Jerry's (who, among other beatific acts, shove solid cores of caramel into their ice cream pints) are known for their earthy ways. Take climate change, for example: They want to do something about it. So, the brand introduced a shiny new Tesla Model S "ice cream truck" in New York this week as part of its “Save Our Swirled” climate change tour.
Close that Sprig app, call some friends, and make a gastronomic date at one of these choice spots.
Prolific and popular tweeter, noted burrito champion, and brander of the La Lengua neighborhood (the flat, southern-most section of the Mission between 24th and 30th Streets), Burrito Justice is who you should be reading for updates on the San Francisco lifestyle, maps, burrito tête-à-têtes, and more. Before catching him in person at the "Bikes to Books" poster event at Bender's on Thursday night, get to know him a wee bit better.
Seeing as how the pickling revolution is well underway, you might as well make and serve the best. San Francisco's Super Duper Burger prepares more than 100 pounds of pickled cucumbers per day, in house. Whew. The recipe comes from chef Jose Garcia. Make a bunch and serve them atop burgers and more.
Like the Lord almighty, 7x7 giveth and 7x7 taketh away. Take, for example, topknots, which, we're here to tell you, are over. 7x7 was the first to the male bunparty back in May 2014, championing the librarian-chic 'do for dudes as ultra-sexy. Which it was. Hollywood A-listers like Jared Leto, Leonardo DiCaprio, and Jake Gyllenhaal all helped give this look steam. But the time is now to make it stop. Stop doing that thing to your hair.
Not to be confused with the envious ability to prance around in green tights while singing Comden & Green ditties à la Mary Martin, Peter Pan Syndrome is an unofficial diagnosis/official phenomenon used for men—San Francisco men in particular—who still act like boys. Dudes who refuse to grow up. And by growing up, one can define the tricky term thusly: trading hoodies for suit jackets, getting married, cranking out a few kids, and/or entering into something called “escrow.” You won't find much of these goings-on here in the city. While SF's obsession with youth has turned off many, is it really such a bad thing? Not really.
Before making your way, pint by pint, through St. Patrick's Day, we suggest preparing yourself by soaking up some fine Irish and Irish-themed fare at one of these spots. Lucky you, indeed.
Cribbing LCD Soundsystem's "Manhattan, I Love You But You're Bringing Me Down" — a ditty about the gentrification making the Big Apple less colorful, et al. — local singing duo Kelly Niland and Chris von Sneidern have created a similar sentiment about San Francisco's Mission District. Yes the much-ballyhooed neighborhood has undergone a drastic transformation over the years, going from working class Latino neighborhood to techie and trustafarian artist enclave. It's nothing you haven't heard before.
